This foundation is hard to blend and can look a little bit mask like if I don't use a combination of brush and beauty blender. I started using this way back and I don't like the most recent formula. I only keep going back to it because the color match in undertone is spot on and it wears for long on my oily skin and hot climate. Buff matches my natural color and Sand Beige matched me when I was a little tan. I used to think these shades had a yellow undertone but other yellow foundations don't look right. I think it might be neutral or olive. These are more grey compared to both pink and yellow foundations.

Packaging: 30 ml, just like most foundations. It doesn't have a pump but it isn't a problem because the it's so thick. Hole on the bottle is too big, too much product came out of a bottle. Shades:I have very fair skin, and the second shade 150 Buff is a bit too dark. I classify as fairest skin tone here on Temptalia, so it's probably a good match for those with fair skin. Texture: Quite thick, harder to blend. Not lightweight feeling, also has a weird smell, but that doesn't bother me. Coverage: Medium to full, definetely not full, if you have scars, acne or a lot of redness, it's not going to cover it completely. Staying power: Excellent. It stays on skin until you remove it. Well, except if it is hot or you're sweating. If your skin likes to "eat" foundation, then it''ll seem like foundation's gone, but when you come back home, you''ll see that there's still a lot of foundation on the cotton pad. I forgot to say a couple of important things about foundation which're not very good: it settles in wrinkles and fine lines (especially under eyes), so if you have a lot of wrinkles, this foundation isn't for you, maybe only with a good primer. I would say it cloges pores. And I always get a few pimples from this foundation, but it's nothing terrible. But be careful if you have acne. Update: I'm not going to use it anymore because my skin has more pimples from it. Too bad, I really like it, because of the coverage and staying power, but I don't want my skin to look worse. Maybe it's just not for teenage skin, I'll definetely try it again someday. However, I still would recommend this foundation, everyone’s skin is different, maybe it's just my skin that doesn't like it.
